Antonio Brown made national headlines back in January after an incident at his home involving himself, his trainer, and a moving truck driver. The driver accused Brown and his trainer of theft and battery. After police tried to get Brown to surrender, he finally turned himself in and was charged with felony battery. According to ESPN, Brown plead "No Contest" to that charge, meaning he has no intention of trying to defend himself further in court.
As punishment for the crime, Brown must now complete 100 hours of community service and will be on probation for two years. He also has to take part in a mandatory psychiatric evaluation. Of course, the biggest win for Brown here is the fact that he will not have to serve any jail time.
In many ways, the battery charge was the straw that broke the camels back. Prior to the charge, Brown was getting into numerous public disputes, especially with the mother of his children. Brown was increasingly falling out of favor with the NFL, but now, he seems to have mellowed out quite a bit and has been hard at work to get himself back on an NFL roster.
With this legal battle behind him, it will be interesting to see what's next for AB.
Antonio Brown Pens Emotional Message To Deion Sanders
Antonio Brown has a ton of love for his mentor and NFL legend Deion Sanders.
Antonio Brown is a name that was in the news a lot throughout 2019 and even at the beginning of 2020. Eventually, however, Brown decided to exit the spotlight and began his journey to redemption. Now, Brown is mostly seen working on himself and is constantly posting workout videos. The NFL superstar is still without a team but it is obvious that he is trying his best to get back into the league and be the best person he can be.
Over the past few months, Brown has received quite a bit of mentorship from NFL legend Deion Sanders. Sanders’ advice has really stuck with AB and recently, the receiver took to Instagram where he penned an emotional note to Sanders, who replied saying “Wow boy u got real Tears out me man!”
“I want to express gratitude to my mentor/ friend/ father figure Deion Sanders for taken time out of his busy life in these trying times to give me some guidance. I am deeply humbled and indebted to the knowledge you given me. Being around yourself and family helped me in so many ways it unimaginable. As black men we don’t usually reach out for help and we keep things bottled up. I appreciate the time. I appreciate the knowledge. I appreciate the love. My eyes have reopened and your words have me more focused than ever. I now see that Antonio is just as Great as AB. I just needed to prove that to myself!”
AB also made sure to say Rest In Peace to Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd who were both murdered on camera.
As the NFL season approaches, it will be interesting to see if a team takes a waiver on Brown, especially with his reputation inching back to normal.
Russell Wilson Reportedly Wants Antonio Brown On The Seahawks
Antonio Brown’s future in the NFL is unknown at this point but it seems like there are some people vouching for him.
Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are one of those teams that are always dangerous once they get into the playoffs. Wilson has been able to propel his team to a Super Bowl title and another Super Bowl appearance the year after. Now, the Seahawks have had less success but they are still one of the premier teams in the NFC.
Wilson is hoping that his team can bolster their offense in the offseason and according to John Clayton per ESPN, Wilson is looking at none other than Antonio Brown for the team’s receiving core.

“It’s pretty clear the Seahawks want to run the ball even more this year. They have loaded up at tight end and tried to stay big along the offensive line. But it’s not out of the question for the Seahawks to add another wide receiver. According to sources, Wilson would love to add Antonio Brown. Brown is also close with backup QB Geno Smith, whose one-year contract with the Seahawks was finalized Wednesday.”
Brown has had his fair share of problems over the last few years so it will be interesting to see if the Seahawks decide to follow through on Wilson’s request. Not to mention, if they do sign Brown, there is no guarantee the NFL lets him step on the field right away.
Stay tuned for updates on this developing story.
Ravens GM Comments On Potential Antonio Brown Signing
Antonio Brown is on the free-agent market and the Ravens have been a rumored destination.
Antonio Brown is a name that is always making its way through the rumor mill, especially as it pertains to free agency. Brown is currently without a team, however, he is one of if not the best wide receivers in the entire NFL. With this in mind, there is no doubt that there is a team that will take a waiver out on him, eventually.
For the last few weeks, there have been rumors that Brown could end up on the Baltimore Ravens. This was after the wide receiver was seen working out with current NFL MVP, Lamar Jackson. Recently, Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta was asked about signing Brown and as he subtly explained, nothing is off the table.
“We’re always assessing the players out there on the streets,” DeCosta said. “We’re looking at guys, we’re making decisions that we think are best for the clubs. If we think there’s a guy out there who fits us, who’s got the skill set to provide value, we’ll certainly pounce on that kind of guy. As Ozzie always used to tell me, we don’t play games until September. So, we’ve got a lot of time to build the best team we can build and we’ll continue to do that. I look at this time period right here after the draft as a great opportunity to get better as a football team and we will look to do that.”
It remains to be seen whether or not Brown is picked up for next season so stay tuned for updates as we will bring you all of the latest news.
Antonio Brown Displays Insane Speed During Recent Workout
Antonio Brown is working hard to get right back into the NFL.
Antonio Brown has been through an enormous amount of trials and tribulations throughout the last year or so but that hasn’t stopped him from working hard and trying to get himself back into the NFL. As it stands, Brown is without a team and it remains to be seen when he will ever step foot onto an NFL field again. Of course, we are in free agency right now but no team has expressed much interest in the former Steelers star. For now, his career is in jeopardy and the longer he stays without a team, the worse things will get.
Despite all of this, Brown remains optimistic and his latest Instagram post is proof of that. As you can see, he has been going to local football fields and has been running routes and catching passes, to keep his skills in shape. Based on what you see in the post below, it is clear that he is still an elite receiver and could be a weapon on virtually any team.
It remains to be seen if there is still a market for him out there although considering how many squads need a star receiver, there is surely one team that will take a chance on him.
Either way, stay tuned for updates concerning the NFL as we will be sure to bring them to you.
Lamar Jackson Speaks On Possible Ravens-Antonio Brown Signing
Antonio Brown has expressed interest in Lamar Jackson and the Ravens, in the past.
Antonio Brown is an athlete who has been through a lot of ups and downs over the past year. Unfortunately, there have been a lot more down but the NFL wide receiver is determined to change that in 2020. He has been working out at home every day and is always close by his phone in case a team calls. Over the past few weeks, there have been little rumblings here and there that Brown might be setting his sights on the Baltimore Ravens. In fact, he perpetuated those rumors just under a month ago.
Today, the new face of Madden 21, Lamar Jackson, was doing a Q&A session on the Baltimore Ravens Twitter account when all of a sudden, he was asked about his team potentially signing Brown. The MVP quarterback was very direct with his answer noting that he would be happy about it although it's not something he can control or even outright demand.
Jackson was dominant last season when it came to throwing and running the football. His team went 14-2 and all they were really missing was a superstar wide receiver. Brown would certainly be that missing piece and if he joined an already stacked offense, the Ravens would easily become Super Bowl favorites.

Antonio Brown Unveils Plan To Aid In Fight Against Coronavirus
Antonio Brown is taking the initiative to get people supplies during these uncertain times.
Antonio Brown has had a wild last twelve months and there is no denying it. Whenever you mention his name, it is almost necessary that you acknowledge all of the antics that have followed him around over the past 365 days. With that being said, Brown has been making a conscious effort to fix what he's done and show people that he isn't the man that has dominated the headlines as of late. In fact, Brown is looking to shift his attention to COVID19 relief.
Today, Brown hopped on Twitter where he alerted his fans about what he will be doing in Liberty City, Miami over the weekend. As it turns out, Brown will be bringing his fans together to give out food, hand sanitizer, masks, and even tissues to everyone who needs it. Needless to say, Brown is looking to give back to the community in a time of need.
Brown made sure to note that everyone will be social distancing, which is certainly good news. Florida has been very lackadaisical with their Coronavirus policies although Brown seems to be taking matters into his own hands.
This pandemic has been a dark time for a lot of people and Brown's help will certainly put a smile on a lot of faces. With this mind, the NFL wide receiver should absolutely be commended.
Antonio Brown Ramps Up Job Hunt, Hires New Agent
Antonio Brown is doing his best to get another chance in the NFL.
Antonio Brown has been one of the biggest newsmakers in the sports world over the last year or so for a plethora of reasons that we don't really need to get into right now. After all, these issues are pretty highly-publicized and if you have paid attention to the sports world over the last 12 months, you would know exactly what I'm talking about. As of right now, Brown is without a team but he has been hard at work to make sure he can get back on the field in 2020.
Today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Brown has taken yet another step in regards to getting back into the league. The superstar wide receiver has hired a brand new agent in the form of Ed Wasielewski from EMG sports. Wasielewski is a veteran agent who has pulled off numerous deals in his time so it makes sense that Brown would seek his services.
For those who don't remember, Drew Rosenhaus stopped representing Brown a few months ago after the player kept finding himself in numerous compromising positions. Rosenhaus made it seem like he could still work with Brown if he got some help but it looks like the wide receiver opted for a fresh face.

Antonio Brown Hit With Three Charges In Delivery Driver Case
Antonio Brown got into an alleged altercation with a delivery driver back in January of this year.
Antonio Brown’s 2020 started off poorly. While he made promises that he would get things back to normal and work his way back into the NFL, he got into numerous altercations with his baby mama, who he is now going to get married to. Perhaps the biggest story to come out of Brown’s January was the fact that he was arrested for assaulting a moving truck driver at his house, alongside his trainer. At the time, Brown was charged with felony burglary with battery although according to ESPN, the charges have been updated.
Brown is now being hit with three charges including felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery, and misdemeanor criminal mischief charges. These details are coming straight from the Broward County court.

What is interesting about the misdemeanor battery charge, in particular, is that it notes how Brown was allegedly striking the driver against his will, in an intentional manner. Of course, none of these charges have been proved in a court of law which means, for now, they are only allegations.
Prosecutors will most likely allow Brown to enter a plea deal which would significantly reduce the penalties he could face if proven guilty.
Stay tuned for updates on the case as we will be sure to bring them to you.
50 Cent Savagely Reacts To Floyd Mayweather’s "Smart Investments"
50 Cent doesn’t take a day off when it comes to trolling on the Internet, especially when Floyd Mayweather is his target.
50 Cent has an incredibly busy schedule but even then, he finds time to torment his adversaries on social media. And that’s when they don’t owe him money. Floyd Mayweather and Fif have had an ongoing feud over the years that doesn’t seem like it’ll fizzle out any time soon. Seeing as Fif’s locked inside of the house for weeks to come, he revisited his feud with Mayweather following the boxer’s Instagram Live with Antonio Brown.

The feds are watching but according to Fif, Floyd never got the memo. During Mayweather’s Live, the boxer showed out with stacks in his hand while explaining why the recession won’t necessarily impact his pockets like it will other celebrities. “I made smart investments,” he began. “That’s why, right now, with this huge epidemic, with this huge s*** going on. All this crazy stuff going on, my investments are still paying off,” he added while flashing stacks and stacks of cash.
Of course, Fif hit the ‘Gram where he shared an edited video of the clip and roasted him for showing all that money on his Instagram Live. “ain’t nobody around to tell him not to say that,” Fif captioned the photo. This is, of course, the same IG Live when Floyd Mayweather also bragged about not paying taxes to Antonio Brown. Check out Fif’s post below.
